A sci-fi novel in album form. A father and son in a dystopian future attempt to enter the City of the Crystalline Entity, which they believe will end the dominance of the planet under a quantum AI which obtained sentience, and formed a universal collective mind that took the form of a crystalline in the geographic center of each planet they control. The father recalls his youth in former times when humanoids still controlled the galaxy. Their journey is on going. They believe that if they can reach the entity, either convince it to shut down, or destroy it by means unknown to them, humanoids will be free. The periphery track is the two talking about what they are encountering, the child saying, “I’ve never seen so many robots before…”
